Description of intervention(s) / exposure
Other interventions - Sargramostim
Treatment: Drugs - cyclophosphamide
Treatment: Drugs - melphalan
Treatment: Surgery - autologous bone marrow transplantation
Treatment: Surgery - bone marrow ablation with stem cell support
Treatment: Surgery - peripheral blood stem cell transplantation

Experimental: Ablative chemo followed by autologous bone marrow (ABM) rescue - Autologous bone marrow and/or peripheral blood stem cells (PBSC) are harvested. Patients then receive intensive cyclophosphamide IV over 1 hour on days -8 to -5 and melphalan IV over 15 minutes on days -4 to -2. Bone marrow is reinfused on day 0. PBSC are reinfused on day 0 if used alone or on day 1 if used after autologous bone marrow transplantation (ABMT). Sargramostim (GM-CSF) is administered IV over 2 hours daily beginning 4 hours after ABMT and continuing until blood counts recover.

Summary
Brief summary
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so
that they stop growing or die. bone marrow transplantation and peripheral stem cell
transplantation may allow the doctor to give higher doses of chemotherapy drugs and kill more
tumor cells.

PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of combination chemotherapy followed by
bone marrow transplantation and/or peripheral stem cell transplantation in treating patients
who have recurrent medulloblastoma or CNS germ cell tumors.
